Microsoft "Microsoft Office isn't among the apps that will run natively on Intel-based Macs - and it won't be until the latter half of 2007, according to media reports. But when it does ship, Office will apparently be missing a feature so vital to cross-platform compatibility that I believe it will be the beginning of the end for the Mac version of the productivity suite."

It's off-topic, but:

"It's sad though that they won't have a Universal version ready initially. Then again, Adobe just released Acrobat Reader as two executables, one for each platform, for each language. Some companies just can't do things right."

Maybe Adobe is using something other than Xcode for Acrobat, like for Photoshop (since Xcode hasn't been the best IDE available to them in the past).
Or maybe they just don't care for the logistics of distributing needlessly big binaries en masse.
